I don't agree. It would be irresponsible in the meantime to let her loose while she can't be responsible for herself. I'm just saying that locking her up is for society's benefit - and then there's things that can be done for her benefit too, which would ultimately be for society's benefit, since society would get back a healthy human into its ranks. It just requires time/money/expertise to bring it about, and this being politically unpopular, it's easier to label her a hopeless monster and throw away the key. Easier but not right.

Sorry, cousin, but that's a huge roll of the dice. The odds are about even that she'd either be rehabilitated, or game the system for three or four years and then go back to stealing, and baking kitty souffle.
Thats the thing Steve I , don't think rehab in the ""Paddy"" sense of the word happens in our systems ? ? Essentially its just punishment .
I heard you get some job training in a few fields of work and maybe some group mental therapy sessions but thats about it ? I believe , not a 100% sure , I don't think an inmate gets one on one sessions with a "shrink" on a regular bases ?

Actually they do in certain cases. A long time friend of mine majored in psych, and his first job out of college in the early '70s was as a staff shrink at Cedar Junction Prison (formerly Walpole State Prison) in Massachusetts, and he had weekly counseling sessions with Albert DeSalvo, The Boston Strangler. It creeped him out big time and he had to quit a year later.
Hard to say, and it varies from prison to prison -- even within the same state, I believe. DeSalvo was serving (I think) multi-ple life sentences, with no chance of parole. So anything the shrinks did with him was more likely for research than for rehab. But the present day prison system is a two-edged sword, because more inmates learn to be more "efficient" criminals, rather than productive citizens.
But still, you can't allow these people to duck the consequences of their actions. Sometimes, it's just too late for intervention. Jeez, looka what a hopeless case youse toined out t'be, ya thug and a half, youse!

Yep thats what I think too - sorta get some "profiling" data for law enforcement
As for rehab - I don't think there is any (measure) or exact science that anyone can say for sure that this murderer is 100% rehabilitated aside from releasing them and wait and see if they murder again.
